consumers by bringing more and more facilities to be incorporated with. Recent rapid technological
development has brought the features of accessed rich internet application to the mobile users.
With the use of such applications consumers can download the internet contents to their desktops
and mobiles. Sun Microsystems has stepped into this space with aim to bring enhancements to the
developers of such applications to allow them to create useful and dynamic graphical user interfaces
across a wide range of mobile devices. JavaFX mobile is based on the Java ME platform to empower
the developers with the facilities in context with the market deriven strategies.
JavaFX mobile was originally designed and developed by SavaJe technologies. It was purchased by
later by Sun in April 2007. It is a powerful technology assisted by Java platform and flexible across
a wide variety of mobile devices. JavaFX mobile applications run on all mobile devices powered by
Java. JavaFX is a kind of operating system featuring Java ME implementation which runs on the top
of a Linux Kernel. It is providing a platform for devices like smartphones and PDAs. Via OEM
(Original Equipement Manufaturer) licenses provided by the Sun Microsystems the JavaFX mobile is
